Rotating tank cleaning nozzles
Rotating tank cleaning nozzles provide 90° - 360° coverage and efficient cleaning through impact and repetition, and are suitable for small to medium sized tanks up to Ø 7.6 m.
Rotating tank cleaning nozzles increase tank washing efficiency over static spray balls, saving time and money by reducing water and cleaning agent consumption, whilst decreasing downtime. These fluid-driven tank cleaning nozzles use the spray media’s reaction force to drive the nozzle head’s rotation.

Choose the right product for optimised tank cleaning
Choosing the right product is mainly determined by the type of media the tank contains and the diameter of the tank. In addition, there are a number of other factors to consider in order to achieve an effective tank cleaning process.
Purpose of the tank cleaning process? Duration of the complete cleaning cycle?
A common answer is "A completely clean tank in as little time as possible." It is not always that simple though, there are several factors to consider in order to achieve effective tank cleaning. By optimally dimensioning the tank cleaning process, it is possible to increase ...
What type of product does the tank contain?
Tank content characteristics will identify the amount of cleaning power required. The required cleaning force, toghether with the type of cleaning fluid used in the process, gives a good indication of which tank cleaning nozzle is most suitable for the process.
Which cleaning fluid is used in the cleaning cycle?
Cleaning fluid characteristics will affect tank washer selection. Examples of cleaning fluid properties If the cleaning fluid is a solvent it can cause an explosive atmosphere in the tank, which requires an ATEX exempt tank cleaning nozzle.
Vessel design and attributes? Are tank drawings available?
Vessel design is important when choosing the right tank cleaning equipment. Tank size and shape, together with other equipment inside and adjacent to the tank are important factors. A drawing can be of great help in designing and planning mounting points and installation of tank cleaning equipment.
Available pressure and flow?
Once you have determined which type of tank cleaning nozzle is most suitable for your cleaning process, the next step is to determine the desired flow rate and nozzle size.
What are the benefits of an optimised tank cleaning process?
Optimised tank cleaning can make a big difference and contributes to: improved washing results shorter washing cycles reduced water and chemical consumption lower temperature of the washing liquid easy maintenance higher process efficiency This in turn leads to time savings, reduced energy consumption and lower costs.
What is the difference between various types of tank cleaning solutions?
Choosing the right tank cleaning nozzle for the cleaning process depends mainly on tank content and tank diameter. Both stationary and rotating spray devices are offered because one nozzle's operating principle and design could be more effective than the other depending on the application.
